Chapter 5: Perfect Timing To Sell Your Property
There are several factors that contribute to the ideal time to put a piece of property on the market. Not all the reasons are beneficial to the seller, but taking into account the market sentiment of the time will help to ensure better possibilities of a successful sale.
The following are some of the factors that contribute to the perfect time to put a piece of property on the market:
For most people in the house hunting mode, the time of the year is very important for making the necessary arrangements to move. The most dominant factor in most cases would be the change of location which would also mean the change of schools for the children.
This is one of the reasons why most people choose to start house hunting at least 6 months before the school year officially ends.
Having the additional pressure of dealing with unhappy school going children can be quite upsetting as most children do not adjust well when they are up rooted in the middle of a school year.
Another popular time of the year that is considered perfect timing to sell any property is during the spring and summer months. This is generally due to the fact that, house hunting during these months of relatively pleasant weather can be a more enjoyable experience, rather than having to do so in the unwelcoming weather conditions of winter.
Having the potential buyer view the property when it can be seen in an airy, sunny and fresh day is definitely a plus compared to dreary winter viewing.
Besides being able to view a property in the best weather circumstances, there is also the issue of the actual move to contend with. Moving into a new home in the spring and summer months presents a much lesser challenge than having to do so in the winter months. From a cost effective angle, moving in winter can be rather expensive, as some of the items may require regulatory heating measures.
